Kippi, I love how we both used twigs to make our ornaments. Creative minds definitely think alike! Your buffalo plaid tree is so festive! I'm going to make some with my daughter to give as handmade gifts this year. Thanks for the inspiration! Pinned :)

I really like the classic gingham red and white. I am always a sucker for anything made with a twig or branch. Thank so much for the tutorial. These would be so gorgeous filling a whole tree.
